More than 30 years ago, the bagpiped group began performing in Dayton.
The original Bagpiping Band began in the early 1970s as a band called the Bagpeters, but later changed its name to the Bagpatters to keep the name fresh.
The group was formed in the basement of The Palace Theatre, the home of The Blue Note, and the first Bagpitter performed at the Blue Note in 1973.
They were known for their signature bagpings that featured string and wood.
The Band members also recorded a string quartet with The Blue Pips.
The members have remained in the Bagpitters family for over 30 years.
In 2015, the Bagpicher was voted the best musical act in the country by The Washington Post, and in 2017, Bagpits members were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Honor.
